Lab 2

In the Loop

In this lab you will create programs that implement some of the concepts that you’ve recently learned in class and in your readings. Specifically, you will practice writing and using for loops to handle repetitive operations.


  • Become more comfortable using variables and mathematical expressions
  • Use for loops to solve a variety of programming problems
  • Generate simple ASCII graphics using patterns with nested loops
  • Generate fun images with the module

Instructions describing what commands are available for drawing shapes can be found here.
